Price differential? I also received a $500 accessory credit with the dealer. I know I need a cargo mat, but any other accessories you think would be fun/needed/useful?
Not exactly the same, perhaps, but the towing package isn't supposed to be available until April. "Under design review". Accessories listed for the 2011 X3 so far is the receiver cover.
They list roof-mounted bike racks, but I've never been too keen on putting things up on the roof.
